Each week industry leaders Damon Boelte and Sother Teague sit down with a wide range of hospitality and spirits experts from around the world to discuss everything that impacts their business over The Speakeasy. Last week was episode 342, “Southern Fried Hospitality”.
Take a listen to learn about how they are bringing a true sense of cocktail culture and genuine hospitality to the south with their lively and comfortable bars.
In case you missed it, Sother came to both Raleigh and Greensboro Dram and Draught for his book signing featuring “I’m Just Here for the Drinks”. A great time was had by all, especially the crew who went out to dinner in Raleigh after the event. Apparently, local chef Ashley Christensen hooked them up with a delicious meal at Death and Taxes followed by a tour of the vault. You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out more details!
You’ll learn just how Drew and Kevin got into the hospitality industry and how they came to love bourbon. When they first met one was trying to get into the bourbon business and one of them was trying to get out. After about a year and a half, the two got together to speak again and this is when the concept of Dram and Draught came alive. They also talk about what it means to run multiple locations of the same concept and hear what’s on the horizon for these dynamic entrepreneurs.
